2002 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
This car is really scary and annoying.
The cupholders work when it feels like
working; sometimes it jams. Also, the
designers did a lousy job designing the
cupholders and seats. The passenger
front doesn't have an armrest because
the cupholder is there. and, the seats
are so big that i tend to slide from
side to side while changing lanes on
the freeway. The COMMAND system is
really disapointing, compared to ones
on Acura, Infiniti, Lexus, even Honda
and Toyota (all these cars are
CHEAPER), and all offer touch screen
capability, and most with DVD based GPS
systems. The value on this car is
really disapointing. Overall, I am not
pleased with the car.
This car has a blind spot. When
looking on the rear-view mirrors, you
can't see past the rear door handles
because either the car is way too long
and because the end tapers inward.
